Hmm, sounds like the marking present function, or the prizes function, then as well!

Out of curiosity, what do you find bad about the online registration function?

Thanks to a few recent meetings with other SM users (experienced users and converts) I will update the file

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bX4 ... sp=sharing

and I have also added a simple ECF to FIDE conversion chart which you can print out, the might be useful if like me you run tournaments using FIDE for seeding, but have a lot of players enter on the day with just ECF grades. Ideal for blitz events! Thanks to Geoff Gammon for that idea.

The new version of SM has the ability to tick off players as they arrive for an event, and pair just those players for round one. This is very useful if you have a regular junior club with a regular swiss, for instance, but you just don't know which kids will turn up for the event until the last minute.

If you have tips to share please let me know.
